Saturday 17th February
Went out with the NTGG at a new site cannon netting for Gulls. A slight delay with the dust cart turning up later than expected meant that we had to take a quick catch as we had to be off site by lunch time. We ringed 323 gulls mostly Herring and had 3 controls from Denmark, Norway and York. Just a few Black headed and some GBBG. However we did see 3 Caspian Gulls all 2cy and 2 Med. With the experience team on site we were able to smoothly process all the gulls in time and safely. It was a fantastic morning ringing!

A short mist net ringing session with Paul H produced double figures but the bird of the day was this female Lesser Redpoll 5.
